Before I became a Minnesota licensed real estate broker, I began my career with Larkin Hoffman, where I gained invaluable legal experience working across litigation and transaction departments. Whether examining abstracts of title or preparing for the subsequent MnDOT trial, I witnessed both the success of seamless transactions and the consequences of deals gone wrong.
After nearly nine years at the award-winning mid-sized law firm, I left for the unpredictable post-recession real estate development world. During my roughly five-year tenure at Oppidan, I became an expert in development process implementation. I facilitated hundreds of transactions, including acquiring privately-owned lots in Waconia, remodeling 23 Gander Outdoors stores across the US, constructing a Sprouts-anchored shopping center in Albany, California, and building and selling multiple apartment buildings in North Dakota.
After a brief period with a Minneapolis-based start-up development company, I realized I could better utilize my skills by starting my consulting venture. My clientele includes real estate developers, boutique law firms, and other entrepreneurial professionals. I have cultivated relationships and facilitated interactions between buyers, sellers, title companies, lenders, attorneys, architects, engineers, city staff members, protesting neighbors, and investors to provide efficient transactions. My diverse background allows me to offer various services, from preparing the stack of closing documents to development management from pre-acquisition through sale.
My qualifications include a paralegal certificate from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and a bachelor’s degree from St. Catherine University, where I majored in Philosophy in Applied Ethics. I also hold a Minnesota real estate broker license and PADI open water diver card.
